Sometimes… a dress can change your mood. Sometimes, a flirty fit, playful length, and a bold hue can change your attitude and mood instantly. Such is the case with this yellow plus size dress from Rue 107, and let me tell you, I feel energized and sexy!
I love my legs. Over the years, they may have gotten bigger, shown a little more cellulite, but guess what? I don’t care, I LOVE them. Years past, I was a college cheerleader, learning how to tumble, basing stunts, and showing off my high kicks and now? These thighs remind me of my strength, my height, and they give me confidence to have a little fun, showing them off, now and again.
So, when I saw this Rue 107 Michelina dress that a few other bloggers have been rocking, I knew that I had to rock it, to be a #RueBabe. Hehehe.
And guess what?
I am so happy that I did.
Thanks to Jasmine and Barry of Howell Designs, they bared with me as I had just a little too much fun in this dress. And let me tell you why!
I have a fuller tummy and hardly any hips… Listen, I know what I am and am not working with… lol but this fit & flare cut was perfect for me to play up what I did have- boobs and legs, while making me feel confident in my areas that I did not want to draw too much attention to what I am keenly aware of.
The length of the dress? As long as a dress/skirt/shorts hits past my fingertips? Girl… I am golden. It was perfect for my 5’8” frame! Available up through a size 24, I played in the 2X to make sure that I was comfortable, even through I straddle a size 16/18.
Ohhh and did you know that Rue 107 manufactures ethically in New York? Yes, girl… they do.
Even better? This dress is only $68! What a perfect dress to rock to those summer rooftop, pool, or beach parties, right?
